I think this is a wonderful idea to close these tax eatging animals. this is only one step that should be taken to help reduce the tax burden on old folks who never have and never will use these facilities, let the folks who want them pay for them not the entire county. we are not as of ten minutes ago a complete communist nation but it appears we are heading there very fast, Do whatever it takes to reduce tax spending.

I wish dekalb would close 50 more and use the money to fund more police officers. The crime in Dekalb is out of control!!!!!!!!!!

This is the best management idea to come out of Dekalb County in a long time. For the ones that remain open Dekalb should make all recreational facilities charge participants usage fees enough to pay for their operating costs.

the government cant provide food, housing,transportation,schools ,and everything else someone needs to live.At some point, someone in dekalb county is going to have to go to work to provide for everyone.IT DOESNT WORK LIKE THIS FOLKS.CLOSE THE POOLS OR CHARGE $10 per DAY and let someone HONEST take the money up.YOU DONT SEE SIX FLAGS AND STONE MOUNTAIN PARK LETTING BLACK PEOPLE IN FREE DO YOU?

sell a seasons pass to the ones who use it.It is not illegal for the city to NOT allow everyone to swim.If your on welfare, get a job so you can afford to send your kid to the pool.Life is not a GIVE ME THIS and GIVE ME THAT because I am on government assistance.Life is about WORKING for what you have,

your point started out good, but you lost it when you turned it in to a race thing. Just FYI, "blacks" are not the only people on welfare. Take some time and become aware of your surroundings before you decide to criticize.

hire a babysitter.The state or county facilities are NOT in place to babysit your kid.When he drowns in the pol you want to sue them.Take some responsibility and stop being a slave to government

With all the free recreation provided for the low income people Dekalb can't swim either. It is drowning in a sea of debt. Make everyone pay for what they use and get, and save the taxpayer's money. If the use of a swimming pool cost $20/person/day charge them this much. It will only take one cost accountant one hour with a computer to determine this amount.
